Baked Chicken with Peaches

Lately, I feel like I've been running around like a mad woman trying to get everything done that I need to during the day/night. It's times like these that I'm grateful for fast and healthy homecooked meals. One that I came across years ago was Baked Chicken with Peaches on the AllRecipes website. It has definitely become my go-to recipe during times of crisis when I can't order food from a restaurant and need a dinner in about 30 minutes. The fruit juice from the peaches keeps this chicken very moist as it bakes. I like to serve it with brown rice and whatever veggies I have on hand. Enjoy!

  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 fresh peaches - pitted, peeled, and sliced (I use canned peaches if fresh aren't available)
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a baking dish.

Place chicken in the prepared baking dish, and sprinkle with 1/4 cup of brown sugar. Place peach slices over chicken, then sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup brown sugar, ginger, cloves, and lemon juice.

Bake for about 30 minutes in the preheated oven, basting often with juices, until chicken is cooked through and juices run clear.
